Gets a Boolean that represents whether the application was deployed from a network using ClickOnce.
' Usage Dim value As Boolean = My.Application.IsNetworkDeployed ' Declaration Public ReadOnly Property IsNetworkDeployed As Boolean
The My.Application.IsNetworkDeployed property indicates whether the application was deployed from a network using ClickOnce. For more information on ClickOnce applications, see ClickOnce Deployment.
You should check that this property is True before accessing the My.Application.Deployment Property. Otherwise, if the application is not deployed from a network using ClickOnce, reading the My.Application.Deployment property results in an InvalidDeploymentException exception.
For more information on using the My.Application.IsNetworkDeployed property, see Overview of the Visual Basic Application Model.
This example downloads and installs the update after checking that the application is deployed from a network. The Update method does not update the application unless it is out of date. The application has to restart to use the update. For more information, see How to: Download ClickOnce Application Updates.
Only applications that are ClickOnce-deployed can be updated using the My.Application.Deployment object. For more information on deploying a ClickOnce application, see How to: Publish a ClickOnce Application.
